Literature
I am a Mouse
I am a mouse.
I am quiet, I am nothing.
I am a book that nobody has read.
I am an eclipsed sun and a cloaked moon.
I am irrelevant and unwanted, a broken toy in an attic.
I am the dust in your rear-view mirror that you leave behind.
I am the air that you breathe in and spit out as something different.
I am the palest white. I am the darkest black. I am the dullest, emptiest grey.
I am the old man with forgotten memories and the baby who has yet to make them.
I am a forgotten word, dangling on the tip of your tongue, hanging on the noose of your lips.
I am a dried up stream. I am a felled forest. I am an abandoned cornucopia of resolute nothingness.
And there is Hell burning in my eyes.

Establishing Your Self-Publishing Business
Continuation of "So You Want to Self-Publish?" (http://merrak.deviantart.com/journal/So-You-Want-to-Self-Publish-342758484)

Here's some prerequisite reading for you, today.
Seven Signs That You're Not Ready to Publish. (Thanks to raspil for posting this link in a journal.)
This is important reading. If you answer "doesn't apply to me" to all 7 questions, and feel you're ready, then it's time to put some money on that. Thousands of dollars. Let's start by spending some of that on
Incorporating Your Self-Publishing Business.
Unfortunately, this will be pretty US-focused, since I'm not aware of international variations. In fact, laws vary even state-by-state. So, for the record, I live in North Carolina.
If you are going to self-publish, this step is hi

10 things to ask before you draw a Children's Book

10 things to ask before you draw a Children's Book  - Guest Post by Wilson Williams, Jr.
Artwork copyright Wilson Williams, Jr.
With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren't sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how d

Seems like the birds are chirping everywhere this morning. How nice it is that summer is back. I know I am pretty terrible about keeping up journal posts and every year I try to make it something I tend to and well that just doesn't seem to happen. So lets try again this year but I cannot seem to make any promises on that one.

Concetta
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Concetta is a multi-talented freelance artist, illustrator and designer. Currently she lives in Pennsylvania with her two children, two dogs and two himalayan cats.

What she says about her experiences:
My family is a great source of inspiration and encouragement to me. They are very supportive of the insanely crazy hours I keep and do their best to help promote me and give me new ideas. We are blessed to live out in the country. There is so much inspiration in nature and being outdoors. It widens your perspective.

Painting is my passion and I love to bring a little piece of my imagination to everyone through my art. Sometimes they are quirky little owls and other times a realistic horse portrait - whatever seems to strike me at the moment...I just run with it.

would you be able to design me some sort of owl tattoo, I love how cute and colorful your owls are! If you view my favorites you'll see what kind of owl styles I like.

OK. Is there any design elements that you would like to have added to this owl? Any thoughts how you might like it to look? I have visited your site to see the types of owls you like. Also, before delivery of the design I do require $35.00 for something like this that can be deposited to my paypal account. Does that sound ok with you?
